How the Weather Is Affecting Your Orders

As you’re well aware, the weather in the Midwest this week has interrupted business as usual for many—including us.

Unfortunately, most trucking companies have postponed pickups all week, and it appears it will remain that way through Friday. As the weather begins to clear, our carriers will begin picking up orders and will have them to you as soon as it is possible.

We apologize for the inconvenience and hope you and your fellow employees are staying safe and warm during these unexpected circumstances.

If you have any questions about the status of your order, please send us an email or give us a call at (800) 272-2634.

We Are Now Food Safety System Certified!

It has been a long, demanding process, but we’re excited to finally announce that we have received our Food Safety System Certification!

Having this FSSC 22000 certification provides a framework for effectively managing food safety and quality responsibilities and demonstrates that we have a robust and effective food safety management system in place to meet the requirements of regulators, food business clients, and consumers. Additionally, FSSC 22000 is fully recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) and is based on existing ISO standards.

In short, this certification is one more way to ensure our poly bags are safe for food contact, and we hope businesses that package food products can feel confident using us as their supplier.

It’s important to note that, just like our ISO certification, this isn’t a “set it and forget it” type of thing. Our commitment to food safety must be maintained, and we will have regular surveillance audits by licensed certification bodies to hold us to these very high standards.

To view our official FSSC certificate, food safety policy, or other relevant documents, please visit our resources page.

If you have any questions about this exciting new change, please send us an email or give us a call at (800) 272-2634. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

No matter how you celebrate the holidays, it’s a great time to slow down and reflect on the blessings you’ve received over the past year.

We’re truly thankful for customers like you and feel very fortunate that you’ve chosen us to be your supplier. Your impact is felt throughout the company and in all of our lives.

In the spirit of this Christmas season, we hope you’ll pass on our blessings to those closest to you.

Wishing you and all your loved ones health, happiness, and prosperity now and in the New Year.

Happy Thanksgiving!

This time of year gives us a great opportunity to thank you for your business and wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving. We hope you’re able to take some time to enjoy the holiday with family and friends and give thanks for the many blessings in your lives.

A-Pac will be closed November 23rd and 24th so our employees can spend the holiday with their own family and friends, but we will all be back in the office November 27th. If there’s anything you need at this time or after the Thanksgiving holiday, just let us know.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Resin and Lead Time Outlook – Fall 2018

It’s been a few months since our last update, so we thought it would be a good time to touch base with you.

The resin market was relatively stable over the summer, so we’ve tried to keep our own pricing stable as well. The cost of freight and other operating expenses continue to rise, but so far we haven’t found it necessary to pass much of those increases on to our customers.

As for lead times, we’re currently looking at 2 to 3 weeks for all bag types. October and November are usually busy months for us, so if you know you have an order coming up, now would be a good time to let us know so we can schedule appropriately.

If you have any questions or comments about this update or would like to place an order, please send us an email or call us at (800) 272-2634. However you choose to contact us, we’ll be happy to help you get the bags you need at a competitive price.

Thank you for your business, and we hope to hear from you soon.
